We're booked at Side from 12-16th April. But having done some more research (and after just learning the beach from Skyfall is Fethiye!!), are startring to give a serious consideration to Fethiye.
This is our first trip to Turkey and given the surprising lack of information on the web, we went ahead with Side considering its got one of the better beaches in the area. However, the below points may make us look at Fethiye over Side:
1- Side being a lot more spread out vs Fethiye which is a more compact place- better for a shorter stay?
2- Better nightlife at Fethiye, caters to a younger crowd?
3- and most of all, better beach (Oludeniz) at Fethiye?
4- Fethiye better connected and easier access to more places bearby?
This being our first trip, would like to make the most of what we've got...Would be very keen to hear what you've got to suggest. Thanks!
PS- we were almost decided on Philippines and Turkey was a last minute change-- so looking for our beach fill these 4 days--- not really into history.
